South Dakota -
First Abortion-Free State....

[COMMENT:  Thanks be to God...!  

However, if our pseudo-conservative movement had been competent, honest, and Godly, we would have long ago toppled Roe v. Wade.  Or, rather, never have had it passed.   The Church is the major culprit, and will be severely chastised by God for its abysmal showing over the last 200 years.  Go to Conservative Collapse.  And pray for spiritual renewal in America.     E. Fox]
 

Well at least we're making progress on guns and abortion! 
 
Heroic efforts of pro-lifers have turned the dream of an abortion-free state into reality

Sioux Falls, South Dakota On Monday, July 21, eight women arrived at the Planned Parenthood office in Sioux Falls abortions but were instead met with locked doors and a hand-written note indicating the only abortion clinic in South Dakota was closed.

Planned Parenthood remains closed for abortions after their abortionists, who are flown in from other states, refused of work under the new law that went into effect last Friday. The law orders abortionists to inform patients of the humanity of their babies and that the procedure could affect their mental health two hours before the abortion can be done. The law also provides that abortionists can be sued if they do not comply.

This law was the brain-child of attorney Harold Cassidy and passed with the help of determined pro-life leaders Dr. Alan and Leslee Unruh, who pushed for the regulation in the face of opposition even from those in the pro-life movement. The Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals cleared the way for the law's enactment last week.

In remains unclear if the Planned Parenthood office has permanently ceased the practice of abortion. However, several women who were scheduled for abortions this week went to a pro-life center instead where some have reportedly changed their minds about having abortions.
 
"The closing of this clinic is historic in that South Dakota is, for the time being, the first abortion-free state," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "It didn't take the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and it didn't take a new President or a new Supreme Court. It took the courageous determination of pro-life heroes like Mr. Cassidy and the Unruhs who saw an opportunity to save lives and pressed on until their dream became victory."
